NEW YORK (AP) -- Kevin Spacey has played Bobby Darin and one of "The Usual Suspects." Now the actor-director will take on the role of mentor to showbiz interns in "Going Hollywood," a new eight-part TLC reality series.
The series, slated to premiere this fall, promises to go beyond the velvet rope and document the business of being an A-list celebrity.
"The Hollywood featured in `Going Hollywood' is a place few have seen, and is a refreshing take on what we all believe constitutes `celebrity,'" David Abraham, TLC executive vice president and general manager, said in a statement Tuesday. "Beyond the glamorous premieres and jet-set travel is a world where grit, ambition and, above all, hard work, are the stuff that dreams are made of."
Spacey will be joined by producer Robert Evans and rapper-actor Method Man. During each hour-long episode, the interns will be featured working for Spacey's Trigger Street Productions, The Robert Evans Co. and Method Man Enterprises.
